Utah State University Graduate. BFA in Art & Design with an emphasis in Graphic Design and a minor in Business Management
Ya I don’t know if I need to even say anything else. Except for: I’M DONE!!!!!!!!!!!! Next Saturday May 5th, 2012 I will become a graduate of USU in Art and Design with an emphasis in Graphic Design and a minor in Business Management.
WHAT WHAT!!?!!??!!?!?!?! I’m done!!! Stay tuned for life changing events and what happens afterwards
….another weekend. But this wasn’t just any other weekend. This was my BFA Exhibit weekend. This was the Logan Film Festival Weekend. This was the “fringe” design weekend. This was the redesign of 100N Weekend. This was my parents coming in for the weekend.This was the last weekend of doing projects! By this time next week I will be done with college! I will be done with school projects and sitting in classes. I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe I am going to be graduating in 2 weeks. Thats a short amount of time when you think about it. A lot can happen in two weeks. 2 weeks of waiting. 4 days of getting through my last classes. 4 final projects due. I’m so excited!!!!!!
I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago. I’m wiser, I’m more open and outgoing, more creative, more natured, more traveled. 4 years ago I was graduating high school. Now I will be graduating college. A lot has happened in 4 years. A lot will happen in the next. I know I may not have a set path on what I am doing with my life in the next couple of months, I know its up for grabs on the outcome of a job will be, I know I have no idea where I will be come August, but I do know its hard for my mother to let me go, I know my dad will guide me and support me through my decisions, I know my sister has got my back on whatever I do, I know my man will be there for me and keep on motivating me. I do know that I’m excited for whats to come and I can’t wait for what God has in store for me.
God has a path for me, he has plans for me, I know it may not be as fast as I would like it to be or as clear as I would, but I know its there and no matter what I have faith in him that what ever does happen will be for the benefit of me. What ever path he leads me on will be the one for me. I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago, I’m stronger than I was at the beginning of my senior year, I’m wiser, I’m focused. I’m stronger today than I was yesterday.
As I’m sitting here about to start my homework I realize I have almost less than a month until I am done with school and about 5 weeks until I graduate. Can you believe it? I for sure can’t. That’s 5 weeks until I have to be out in the real world. 5 weeks until I am no longer a college student. 5 weeks until its the real thing. 4 weeks until I can be finally finished with all college courses. 4 weeks until all my final projects are done. Even 3 weeks until my big BFA show!
The weeks and the days determine so much in our lives. We rely on the time of day, the minute of the hour, and the second in the minutes even. A countdown to so many things. A countdown that determines so much. It tests your patience really.
I can’t believe it. I’m looking for grown up internships, jobs to hold me over until then, and even wondering what I will be doing after the summer months. What happens when September hits? I’ve already gone back and forth on where I want to move afterwards and factors do determine a lot of that. Job priority is first, the weather, family and friends in the state, who I know, what I can do. Where I can live. Its just so much to figure out!!! Ahhhhh!!!!1 I am literally not sure what I want to do haha but I know that God will lead me in the right direction. Its all in his plans.
But one of the upsides to all this and becoming a grown up I get to dress like this when I find a real job 🙂
